Education for Cultural Inclusion, Spirituality and Health
Friday 18th January 2019
This workshop is offered to create a bridge between mainstream education about health, and what people really do for their well being. We know religious and cultural differences influence health outcomes for new migrants and refugees. Our aim is to raise awareness of cultural expressions of ill health, discuss religious and spiritual strategies for treatments, and offer insight into existential explanations for the diagnosis of mental health and unusual experiences.
